's unacceptable in today's environment. >> schieffer: do you have any answers yet as to why-- we know that they had asked to maintain their-- the current level of security and that was turned down. do we have any idea on what that decision was based on? >> no, and we're still getting to the bottom of that. that's one of my primary concerns. and that's certainly what i'm driving. first of all, why there was failure for adequate security at the temporary mission. and secondly, why they didn't assess the security risks posed to that facility? they had abundance of threat reports and incidents, both to that facility and other consulates that would have suggested that they were in a high-threat environment. i sponsored-- i cosponsored the initial legislation-- i was the lead republican in the house-- to create the diplomat security bureau and the accountability review board that also has been initiate so we can get to the bottom of who is responsible. there was minimal security. the barriers weren't sufficient. the attackers, the mob, overran the complex. the militia we were depending on d
're not directly getting at that. >> i think the carbon tax makes enormous sense to do with the environment impact of energy use. you can design one in a way that does not cause too much harm for american industries that compete with folks abroad. consumption tax, there are things you can do to treat the income tax to make it look more like a consumption tax. >> i want each of you to give me your thoughts at the end of the day, what do you think the tax code will look like with his conversations between the cop -- between the president speaker boehner are done? >> i think we will have slightly higher marginal tax rates on some high-income tax -- and these 1 high income tax payer. i think there will be a variety of tax exclusions and deductions that are scaled back modestly. >> if scaled-back means capped in some way, i agree completely. rex i think we will see some of those things will back. the top rate will be either 39.6 or 35. it will be somewhere in between. >> we have some common ground here among our economists. thank you, a gentleman for joining us. thank you all. i appreciate the peterson
can see a hair floating wildly in the anti-gravity environment. she choked up as she spoke of the enormity of the work that she and her fellow astronauts do up there. take a listen. >> we are honored to be fulfilling that dream and living that dream right now. so i just wonder what is going to happen -- or what our future has in store for us, 10 years, 25 years, 50 years and 100 years from now. >> reporter: incredible shot there. she handed it off. they return to us at 8:53 with a russian and a japanese astronaut. they have had a busy motion to fix a radiator leak, the docking of the dragon, the first cargo craft to visit the international space station and they have been part of human scientific tests. to cap it off, they had a close call with a chunk of space debris on friday. the crew had to be ready to scramble to the life boat, while the debris drifted within two moyl miles of them. in space, that's really, really close. a big sigh of relief from the career. back to you. >> shannon: highly technical work. those are brave folk, bringing back the information to help us w
. what's different about this situation versus four years ago is the entire regional environment has changed. you have got a civil war going on in syria, you've got protests going on in jordan, you've got unrest along the israeli -- gyp shan border. you've got iran close to a nuclear weapon. >> how important is the relationship right now between president obama and president morsi in egypt? >> it will be critical. and as the president said in the advance of the election, he's neither at the point friend or foe. morsi has a very difficult delicate political charge, his party, the freedom of justice party comes out of the muslim brotherhood, they have an affinity with hamas. and president morsi is after his own challenges, getting his economy back on track, he's going to need significant support from the united states, the president and the congress. he's got different constituencies pulling him in opposite directions. >> to wolf in jerusalem, we all know the relationship between president obama and mr. netanyahu was challenging for the last four years. but now how much influence do yo
as the arab spring, clearly the environment has changed, and i think the united states now is looking to morsi so look to hamas to get them to stop shooting. hopefully you can take advantage of the negative situation and start talking about peace. >> president morsi has his own problems at home too in terms of trying to be tough on hamas, which, after all, is part of the muslim brotherhood and the palestinians. do you think he can be helpful? has he been helpful? >> i don't know that he has. clearly we've benefitted from almost 40 years now of having peace partners between israel and egypt even though the egyptian government never told the people of egypt how important this was to maintain this peaceful relationship, and we don't have that right now. i think the prime minister of egypt -- not morsi, but the prime minister went to gaza, high-ranking person went to gaza last week, met with them. they've expressed all kinds of industry. certainly the senate passed a resolution last week unanimously that's in line with what the congressman just said about the right to defend yourselves, but we've
. the populations and politics are more populous. much more unpredictable environment with the event occurring here as we saw it in 2008. >> okay. p.j., tell me about this iron dome defense system. what that is about and the upgraded hamas weaponry. where does this weaponry come from? mouth how does all of the technology change the equip there? >> hamas upgraded missile systems, undoubtedly support for a variety of countries. particularly iran. because of the political changes here, egypt has relaxed its enforcement of the border between gaza and egypt making smuggling of these systems in to gaza more easy. then of course i will you have a little bit of the -- the building of an ingij nous missile capability in gaza since sit israel retreated in 2007. the iron dome is a major project of cooperation between israel and the united states. it undercuts one of the major arguments in the campaign that there was a lack of attention to israel's defense needs when in fact there is a great manifestation of significant security cooperation and obviously what we are seeing is it with was not a perfect system.
